Bald eagles survives train collision, finds healing at Detroit Zoo
DETROIT – A bald eagle who was injured after a train collision last fall is now thriving at the Detroit Zoo. In Oct. 2019, the bald eagle was discovered injured in a Wendy’s parking lot in Monroe, Michigan, after a citizen reported witnessing a train and bald eagle collide a week prior, according to the zoo. The bird, named Captain Marvel, joins two other rescued bald eagles at the zoo; Flash and Mr. America. “We’re happy that we’re able to offer her a home here at the Detroit Zoo,” said Scott Carter, chief life sciences officer for the Detroit Zoological Society (DZS). “Female bald eagles tend to display more assertive behaviors, so she could end up being in charge in the eagles’ habitat,” said Carter.
